Rick helped our family to find the perfect house. He is patient and really go above and beyond for us. We learned a lot from him about real estate and homes. I have already recommended him to my family and close friends and I would highly... highly.... recommend to anyone. Just talk to him for 15 minutes and you will be AMAZED
Rich is a real estate agent with the heart of a teacher. We could not have asked for someone better. As first-time home buyers, the process of buying a home seemed daunting. Rich was great to work with, he educated us on the real estate process, the local market, and was always available to answer any questions we had
This was our first purchase of a home, and we had no idea what we were doing or how the process works. We didn't have a clue about housing expenses, Property Tax's and Tax exemptions, the extremely small details that are usually overlooked in a house, and so many other things. Rick guided us along the way, and now I feel like a semi-pro at home buying. He was always available if we had any questions or concerns, no matter the time of day. You can see the amount of experience, the vast network system Rick has built and his ability to get a great deal.
I highly recommend Rick to anyone searching for a new home especially any veteran who is wanting to purchase a home. He has a great incentive for vets which me and my wife greatly benefited from (he does a program that he gives vets 20% of his commission back to the buyer). There's a reason why Rick is one of the top realtors in the area. Thank you Rick for your hard work in finding us a house!
Rick Baker was very professional and knowledgeable about our search area. He was able meet and exceed our needs. He is a realtor with the heart of a teacher and as 1st time home buyers, this was greatly appreciated. He made special effort to speak to us in length about the buying process, he was able to point specifics about houses and the market that we would not have otherwise thought to ask. We were originally looking to rent but Rick, thankfully was able to show us that we could reach our dream of owning our own home. We felt very prepared throughout this process because of his help.

Rick was amazing! He listened to everything I was looking for and was very knowledgeable and thorough. He was always easy to get ahold of and very dedicated! Couldn’t have asked for a better Realtor.
From day 1, Rick fought to get us the best deal on our dream neighborhood and won! He was more than our Realtor, he was our friend, family and our attorney. He is extremely knowledgeable and can connect you with just about anyone. When we walked into American Legend; the local competitor for Highland Homes, Holly couldn't even come close to the price we received from Highland. Rick is your guy!

He was so helpful and I would and have recommended friends to Rick . I not only found a realtor for life but a friend as well.
Chris C. I learned more from Rick Baker in one hour standing in front of Highland Homes than I did in three weeks with Maureen XXXXX
(another Realtor) in three WEEKS!
Expert and integrity would be our two top descriptions of Rick. There's no hiding that Rick's many years of experience as an investor in real state had served him well. At the same time, Rick is patient enough to educate us with his vast knowledge of the market so that we could make the best decision. He guided and helped greatly in remodeling and upgrading our house so that it would get top dollars. Rick took consideration of our unique situation and worked tirelessly to negotiate the best deal for us. We greatly respect Rick's honesty and integrity in dealing with everything, a rarity nowadays! We just can't say enough good things about Rick. We'd definitely trust him with our next real state need and recommend anyone in the area to him. Rick is truly a superb professional in his field deserving all the awards he'd won!
